About this tour

Tour route : Kampong Cham – Siem Reap – Angkor Ban – Phnom Penh City – Can Tho – Ben Tre – Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon)

Welcome to Cambodia…

    Equally as exotic and by comparison to Vietnam, the plains of Cambodia open before you as we cruise upstream towards the nation’s capital of Phnom Penh. Along the riverbanks the oxen carts plow their way along a narrow path, working the land, forever contributing to the cooperative, subsistence way of Life that is Cambodia today and yesterday.

…Welcome to Southern Vietnam…

    By combining shipboard life, in elegant French colonial luxury, with discreet and fascinating shore excursions, this is the most intimate way to be ‘up close and personal’ with the people and culture of Southern Vietnam. The ultimate journey of exploration, along the lower Mekong, is to cruise from Saigon Port through the waterways of the famous Mekong Delta and then head north into Cambodian waters.
